Premium Ciders

6 x 750ml Bottles Ross Raison D'Etre Cider

From Unsprayed Orchards: Gluten Free - Suitable for Vegans & Coeliacs

New (2018) Raison D'être - our reason for being

This is the quintessential expression of The Ross Cider Company; the purest definition of what cidermaking means on the farm. This cider is bone dry, fermented in an oak cask and aged, patiently and quietly, before bottle conditioning. 2018 was an exceptional year for cidermaking. The hot summer meant that sugars, alcohol, and flavour intensity all skyrocketed. This is a special vintage.

This cider represents a project of passion to present the highest quality cider in a form it deserves. The utmost care has gone into creating a cider representative of the orchards and of the skill of The Ross Cider Company as cider makers.

Ross Cider's Raison D'Etre cider holds a special place in the hearts of geeks like Ross. Crafted with precision and passion, it's more than just a beverage; it's a manifestation of dedication to the craft of cider making. Ross, the mastermind behind Ross Cider, infuses every batch of Raison D'Etre with his expertise and love for the art. From selecting the finest apples to meticulously monitoring the fermentation process, each step is executed with care to ensure a product of exceptional quality. Geeks, particularly those with a penchant for cider, appreciate the complexity and depth of flavor found in Raison D'Etre. Its rich notes of apple, coupled with hints of oak and spice, create a sensory experience that captivates the palate and leaves a lasting impression, more about which you can read here: https://infogeekers.org/.

It is created solely from Dabinett & Michelin apples grown in their own orchards, fermented in oak barrels using the wild yeast from the farm, and matured for two years until the tannins reached their peak complexity.

The presentation of the bottle is intended to set a new standard for premium, high quality cider with a label detailing the method and ingredients used (99.5% juice, 0.5% sugar, trace sulphites) and a map of the farm as the artwork to highlight the orchard-based nature of this natural cider, a term chosen to separate our cider from ciders produced using artificial methods.
